Grave decorations at cemeteries to be removed by June 8

The City of Garden City Cemetery will allow for Memorial Day decorations to be placed on graves but all decorations must be removed by June 8. Any decorations left after June 10 will be removed by Cemetery staff and discarded. Staff does advise that anyone visiting follow social distancing guidelines set forth by the State of Kansas and the Finney County Health Department.

Decorations are removed each spring to allow for regular mowing and maintenance of the cemetery. The only decorations that are permitted year-round are those placed in permanent monument vases. Flowers that were planted in incorrect locations will also be removed. The City of Garden City limits flower plantings on the north and south sides of monuments, space permitting at Valley View Cemetery. No permanent plantings are allowed at Sunset Memorial Gardens.

Cemetery staff asks that you only pick up those decorations that belong to you. Contact Rebecca Powers, Cemetery administrative assistant, at 276-1220, with questions.
